  1. Authoritarian personality syndrome (strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom)
  2. Social dominance orientation (high dominance groups have authority over low dominance groups)
  3. Prejudice (ears perk up to 'dog whistles'; close parallels to far-right Europeans supporters)
  4. Intergroup contact (significantly less contact with minorities than other Americans)
  5. Relative deprivation (feeling of discontent when comparing their position in life to others they feel are equal or inferior but have unfairly had more success than them)
